Our first boat and first post
We tried our new 3.1m, air deck with a Yam. 2 stroke, short shaft, 8hp yesterday for the first time. There was no wind (well..
) and the sea was so smooth that there were even no wrinkles except the ones we made.
As you may guess motor is in break in period so we drive it at about 1/3 throtle max.
And here's the question:
I noticed some (significant?) amount of water coming from where the leg enters the sea and sprays around almost at 90 degrees (well lets say 75
). It doesn't enter the boat but makes the motor section really wet (not the top maybe but all the sides). This happens at speeds a little above the start point.
Here's a video of the case
Spray begins after the second half of the video.
As a note, anti-cav. plate is may be a centimeter or two below the range recommended in Yamaha manual (~2.5 centimeters). And leg is almost perpendicular to the hull, manual trim is at the second hole from the transom (there are 6 holes there with this motor as you know).
What do you think, mounting height or trim angle or both?
Thanks in advance
